MediaRSS

MediaRSS plugin

MediaRSS (MRSS) Plugin allows you to add multimedia feeds to your Play Digital Signage content. You would typically use this plugin together with subscriptions to third-party content providers, like ScreenFeed and many others. While we try to provide all the essential plugins for standard digital signage installations, there are always scenarios when something extra is needed. Digital Signage content providers fill in the gap and provide interesting content to make your screens stand out.

How it works?

Typically you purchase a feed from the content provider, and then you paste in the feed URL into our MediaRSS widget.

You can find a list of content providers here:
